Alzheimer Insights by CurationHealth
Long-term drug use may be a bad thing but what is the point of an Alzheimer’s patient coming off anti-depressants if it makes them harder to control?
Our second story in this Insights looks at one aspect of this difficult issue, and a key point bears re-enforcing: we must be careful about ceasing or resuming drug treatments of any sort without proper medical advice. But two more general points can be recognised too. First, and this is difficult: what comes first – the patient’s welfare or the carer’s ease in “controlling” them? And given the vast amount of discussion around alternatives to drugs for managing mood, can we be sure that all other means have been explored before resorting to drugs?
